    Being stigmatized because of your sexual orientation was higher than it is now.

    For example the show Will and Grace. Will was gay but there was never a love scene or a romantic moment with a another gay person. More importantly the movie was made 21 years ago and so much has changed. Hell she only smack kissed the other gay girl. Nowadays we have gay love scenes.

    And that's on regular prime time TV. Used to be that was only in the movies and then cable.

    Yeah, but she was concerned about how her family would be treated in reaction to her character. That's what made playing that role difficult for her, not being gay.

    I have to disagree kids are. I think because the kid who is getting brutalized has no coping skills. It's Queen L said in the article that she had to explain it to her relatives who were in school. The adults were not a factor..

    Well back in the late 80's and early 90's it was rare to get people to admit they were eating puddin and tossing salad's. It's common now. Fortunately I told them broads up front back in 89,90,91 to wash it up. I got you.

    I think Queen goes both ways. She is cool though. I have met her a couple of times. Once in the ATL and once in L.A. Good folks.
